JavaOne 2012 Call for Papers
The JavaOne organisers have announced that they are now accepting presentation submissions for JavaOne 2012. The annual conference will take place from 30 September to 4 October at the Hilton San Francisco, Union Square and, as in previous years, it will coincide with Oracle's larger OpenWorld event.
Those submitting proposals can choose from six different session types. These include 60 minute Conference Sessions, Panels, Hands-on Labs (HoL) and Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions, as well as "Community Keynote" and "Tutorials", both of which are new for the 2012 event. Submissions should fall under one of the following seven 2012 Tracks:
- Core Java Platform
- Development Tools and Techniques
- Emerging Languages on the JVM
- Enterprise Service Architectures and the Cloud
- Java EE Web Profile and Platform Technologies
- Java ME, Java Card, Embedded, and Devices
- JavaFX and Rich User Experiences
Further details, including tips, guidelines and submission requirements, can be found on the JavaOne 2012 Call for Papers page. The deadline for submissions is 9 April 2012; notifications of whether a proposal has been accepted or not will be sent at the end of May or in early June.
JavaOne, first held in 1996, is the largest conference for Java developers, worldwide. The event usually plays host to tens of thousands of visitors and was first organised by Oracle in 2010 following its acquisition of Sun Microsystems. For updates, uses can follow @JavaOneConf on Twitter.
